Heating & Cooling

In respon­se to glo­bal trends and mar­ket expec­ta­ti­ons, ILF pro­vi­des solu­ti­ons in line with the 4th Genera­ti­on District Hea­ting and Coo­ling (4GDHC) con­cept of inte­gra­ting smart ther­mal grids (which uti­li­ze cen­tra­li­zed ener­gy plants, rene­wa­bles and low-tem­pe­ra­tu­re heat sources) into sys­tems that opti­mi­ze ope­ra­tio­nal cos­ts and mini­mi­ze heat los­ses, with the help of heat and cold sto­rage systems.

Based on the pro­found know­ledge of heat genera­ting plants such as Com­bi­ned Heat and Power (CHPs) plants, Was­te-to-Ener­gy (WtE) plants and bio­mass-based instal­la­ti­ons, as well as on the vast expe­ri­ence with rene­wa­ble ener­gy sources and ener­gy sto­rage faci­li­ties that its engi­neers have, ILF offers com­pre­hen­si­ve ser­vices focu­sed on opti­mi­zing the over­all effi­ci­en­cy of grids and radi­cal­ly redu­cing the emis­si­on of green­house gases and air, water and soil pol­lut­ants. The­se ser­vices com­pri­se the design of ent­i­re district hea­ting and coo­ling net­works, the ana­ly­sis and opti­miz­a­ti­on of exis­ting net­works, and com­pre­hen­si­ve ser­vices rela­ted to all com­pon­ents or sub­sys­tems of such grids.

ILF ren­ders all the ser­vices requi­red for the suc­cess­ful imple­men­ta­ti­on of hea­ting & coo­ling projects.
